This Wednesday, May 25th, we welcome Lance Guymon, CEO for the Fort Collins branch of Lincoln Electric, the largest welding company in the world, to hear the history and operations of this local organization (formerly Wolf Robotics).  Following his introduction by Bob Meroney, our speaker will share his personal story that led his arrival in Fort Collins in 1990, and the co-founding of Wolf Robotics. The predecessor of Lincoln Electric was founded in the 1950’s by two CSU Mechanical Engineers to manufacture beet harvesting equipment.  This was Heath Engineering, which was located on Heath Parkway near the downtown airport.  Heath shifted its business away from ag equipment to oxy-fuel metal cutting machines, and became a market leader in metal cutting machinery in the USA.

On Wednesday, June 1st,  we host Dr.  Charles Nilon, of the University of Missouri, at noon on Zoom.  He will be introduced by Del Benson, to discuss the importance of the day-to-day places where people live and work to conserving wildlife in cities, promoting urban biodiversity, and providing places for people to have contact with nature.  He will also discuss how these day-to-day places and experiences are linked to environmental justice.

On Wednesday, June 8th, Rotary meets in person at the Lincoln Center.  Following an introduction by Bill Timpson, we will welcome  Claudia Menéndez, who serves as Fort Collins’ inaugural chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer following her appointment in July, 2021.  In her role, our guest is tasked with creating and building the city’s chief diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) office, with the goal of increasing Fort Collins’ ability to support DEI work, both within the ranks of the City staff,  and externally.
